The camp will be held from Monday, July 9 through Friday, July 13, from 9 a.m. to noon.

"Conceptual Design: Computer Generated Imagery" will allow children to work with virtual environments, texture mapping, and special effects.

Two sections of "Lego? Robotics Camp" will be held. Campers will participate by demonstrating the projects they build.
